NO WAR DANGER.
Quite often the assertion is
made that the United States may
at almost any moment find her
self at war. There seems noth
ing in sight at present to war
want such an assertion. There
is nowhere apparent a desire on
the part of our people for war.
If ever there was a period in our
the reoDle as a
whole were inclined to peace this
nnnears to be that period.
Despite intense commercial
competition with other nations
there are no forboding shadows
anywhere; there is not the slight
est sign that indicates a rupture
lea-ling possibly to war; nothing
darkens the peace outlook. Who
could we war with? Great Bri
tain would consider such a pro
position as entirely out of the
question and her people would
shrink from the contemplation of
such an event with horror, as)
would our own people. Our re
lations with Canada were never
mere cordial than at present.
True, England is gradually en
larging her navy, but in this she
is but following up a national
policy of many decades in her
efforts to maintain supremacy
of the seas. Moreover, it is not
probable that at the present
time Great Britain expects to be
a party to war with any nations
closer her shores than we are,
notwithstanding her additions to
In spite of commercial rivalry
there is no reason why the people-
of Germany and the United
States should not be the closest
of friends. Furthermore, Ger
many could not see any chance
of ultimate success in a war with
us. The same may be said of
France. The latter, however,
has been recognized as our spec
ial friend for more than a cen
tury. These are the only Euro
pean powers in a position to
make things entertaining, for us
in case they dared, and there is
no indication that they either
will or dare.
There are many who claim that
our next war will be with Japan.
So far as present conditions are
concerned there is nothing to
warrant alarm in this quarter.
Our one weak spot seems to be
in the Philippines. So long as
we possess these islands there is
always a possibility that we may
be called upon to defend them on
short notice. In the islands is
the only place we are exposed.
On account of our Monroe
Doctrine we may at any time be
called upon to administer some
sort of reproof or chastisement
to some of the little popgun re
publics of South America. Our
present business in Cuba is a
sample of what may at any time
be required of us in bringing
some Latin republic to see the
error of its way.
So far as the world powers aie
concerned, we are at peace with
all of them. NVe are too far re
moved to anticipate trouble with
any of them. Too much water

As time rolled . on affairs did
not go as Harry expected and
there must have dawned a morn
ing when the murderer realized
not only the enormity of his sin,
but the seriousness of his own
position the danger to his own
neck There may-have passed
before his eyes the spectre of
Death, from which the murderer
shrank and in his terror concluded
to allow his mother to make the
attempt to have him placed in
the New York asylum for the
criminally insane. ' .
There seems to be a mania
peculiar unto murderers, a mania
to be adjudged insane just as
soon as their necks are about to
stretch for the penalty of their
crimp. Certainly thinp-s are m
a pretty state when about seven
ty-five per cent of the murderers
are allowed to plead insanity in
the face of the fact that they
evidence good sense when they

it appears probable that the ex

realized in the trial of Harry K.

seems of the opinion that he may
be, or may have been, insane.
Shortly aior committing the
dastardly dee? Thaw scorned the
